Benalmadena is situated on the southern coast of Spain, 15 minutes drive west of Malaga between Mijas and Torremolinos. Benalmadena is made up of 3 areas each offering something different, but together making this a fantastic holiday destination for all the family on the Costa del Sol. Benalmádena Pueblo Benalmadena Pueblo is a traditional Andalucian village on the Costa del Sol, with narrow cobbled streets and white washed buildings. The focal point for the village is the pretty church which is lit up at night. Set in an elevated position the Church overlooks Benalmadena Costa and the Mediterranean sea. Despite the influx of foreigners and the amount of building work that has taken place in recent years the Pueblo has managed to retain its traditional charm, and in my opinion is what makes Benalmadena special. Benalmadena Arroyo de la Miel This is the busy commercial town centre, separating Benalmadena Pueblo on the hill from the sea -front. Arroyo has grown rapidly, due greatly to the excellent train service running between Fuengirola and Malaga. Its also worth mentioning that from Malaga it is now possible to reach Madrid in 2.5 hours, using the high speed line which was only completed in 2008. Benalmádena Costa The Costa is the main tourist area with its nine kilometres of golden sandy beaches. It has an award winning marina with excellent port facilities, fantastic nightlife and a fabulous Aquarium. The marina was voted the best in the world by International Property Magazine in 1995, which is no surprise as it has an excellent choice of luxury accommodation, restaurants, bars and port facilities. Benalmadena Costa is where huge numbers of Tourists stay every year and choose from a range of hotel accommodation, apartment or villa rentals. Many of these hotels, villas and apartments line the Seafront. Consequently, with a huge number of resident and visiting Tourists to Benalmadena and the Costa del Sol in general, the variety of restaurants is enormous. There are many English, Scottish and Irish pubs, most of which have live big screen sporting events. You also have the choice of many different nationality restaurants including, Chinese, Italian, Dutch, Lebanese, Indian etc. Try out the local dishes in any of the Spanish restaurants or tapas bars where fresh fish dishes are served up with wonderful chilled wine. One of the best places on the Costa del Sol for nightlife is Benalmadena Costa's 24 hr square (Solimar Plaza). With so many different types of bars, clubs and restaurants there is always something for everybody. More clubs, live jazz, and salsa dancing are also available nearby at Benalmadena's Marina. There is also a recently built commercial centre with 8 cinemas to choose from, shops & restaurants. Benalmadena has plenty to do for all the family. From the new commercial centre (featuring 8 cinemas) to places such as Tivoli World (Theme Park), the fabulous Jardin de Las Aguilas (Garden of Eagles), Selwo Marina (penguins and dolphins) or cable car rides to see breathtaking views of the coast. There is a varied range of Benalmadena accommodation from apartments and hotels to private Benalmadena rentals. Short and long terms lets can be found with most providers. Properties can be found in central locations, where a car is not required, or for a more peaceful holiday there are retreats away from these central locations.
